Take Two offered 3D Realms $30 million for the Duke

1 min read

I am starting to feel that George Broussard is the problem child in this little family, granted it’s his game and by all accounts his family but he has been running 3D Realms all this time and therefore needs to accept responsibility for it’s failure.

And now that it has failed we are starting to see more news leaking out of the ex-employees, with the latest employee leak stating that Take Two offered George $30 million to acquire the IP rights of the Duke and release the game themselves.

However George refused and rather went fishing for more funding from Epic, EA, ID Software and Microsoft but unfortunately thanks to this recession that never came off.

What hasn’t changed however is that a large portion of the gaming community wants to see The Duke make a comeback and I am 90% sure that we are still going to see that happen. It just has to happen.

    I really don’t care anymore.
    A game that’s been 10 years+ in the making cant possibly live up to the hype?

    It’ll have to come packed with a real stripper.

    i wont even buy this game when its released. Never really like Duke back in the day

  • Banana Hammock

    I’ll get it when/if it comes out, been waiting 10+ years, what’s another couple?

    It doesn’t matter if it sucks or not, i just have to get this thing!

    I kinda knew this was gonna happen, this is Darwinism at its purest.

    I just am curious about the real story of this amazingly Ginormous train wreck of delay.
